It seems you are trying to install a software that is meant for the Windows operating system, not for Linux. Installing software in Linux works differently, you can for example use .deb files. Although some Windows software can be run using a program called "wine", that does not always work.

Why would you use zinf's wnidows installer? It has a linux version, so you shoud use that, if you must use zinf.

However, my recommendation is there are equally good replacements that you can use that can easily be installed from the software repository ("software-centre"). I would recommend the program "aqualung" -- you can install it from the repositories.

Can you help with this problem?
